Chicago Rappers You Need To Hear

FSD Staff

Chicago is home to a number of famous all time rappers and even though we follow their progress avidly, we may overlook some of the rising talent coming straight from the streets of Chicago. This year has been one incredible ride regarding new R&B and Hip Hop releases, but maybe we have missed some finer talent in 2019. Here we take a look at some of the most talented rappers and artists, all straight from the heart of Chicago.


Calboy was the first to get a platinum plaque which he feels makes him a frontrunner. The 20 year old rapper hit it big with “Envy Me’ which many may already know from his debut album ‘Wildboy’ featuring Young Thug, Meek Mill and Lil Durk. The rising star has a number of upcoming events in his hometown, so try to get in on that.


While we get most of our entertainment from, Femdot had us reeling with delight. Born in Evanston took part in many open mic nights at his local town. He was a college student who decided to pursue his love of music rather than complete his health science studies. He would have appeared to have made the right decision with over 25 songs released. His single “Whole Thang” may be recognized by any true Hip Hop enthusiast and another project is underway for later in the year.

Queen Key

The stunning lady may be as subtle as Lil’ Kim, but her lyrics are just as great. Her first mix tape release was “Eat my P—Y”, the rising star released “Eat My P—Y Again”. Another song some may be familiar with is “My Way”, her first single.

Joseph Chilliams

Joseph Chilliams is one of the members from West Side Group Pivot Gang and has been regarded as one of the most humorous rappers in Chicago. The most recent album from the group is titled “You Can’t Sit With Us”. Along with his many talents alongside his brother’s group, is the fact Chilliams can dance as good as his beats. He takes in the limelight and glows on stage. There is talk of new releases heading out soon, so be sure to catch this star at one of the Chicago night clubs.

Taylor Bennet

One of the many hidden talents Chicago homes is Taylor Bennet, the singer who released his new album “The American Reject”. The young star grew up in Chatham and knew almost instantly that he would become a rapper. His apparent talent with words has inspired all who have heard his lyrics and he says he wants to focus his talents on timeless music, the kind you play on special occasions to make them memorable. The star has already appeared on Kimmel and is expected to be seen at many more upcoming events.

The number of stars who have yet to be discovered fills the streets of Chicago and it’s only once in a while they have the opportunity to share their talents Chicago wants to see these stars conquer every obstacle they face to become something greater.
